IKE the setting Sun, 
Memory is now vivid, 
Too soon fading, 
Never quite entirely gone. 
Night dims the Light of Sun 
As Time, the Light of Memory, 
But another day brings new light 
And new hope. 

0, Classmates, may this Book 

Be our eternal day, 

That Memory of these happy hours, 

Dimmed by Time, 

May glow within our hearts 

A perpetual Light 

Throughout the future years.

M^^^HIS book is a revealing picture of your college life and of the 
M C} associations of which it is constituted. It will serve to recall to 
^^^^ you many of the happy hours of the past when the duties and 
environment of a new phase of life will have engaged your atten- 
tion. But it will never be merely a picture of the past, a closed chapter 
without relation to the present. The threads of life are not discontinuous, 
but consciously or unconsciously we must build upon the foundations we 
have already laid. Not only the serious duties of your college life, but 
the results of your personal relations, with all their kindly services and 
self-denials, will have a controlling influence on your future. These will 
not only form the sweetest memory of your college years, but will be a 
factor in making the years to come productive of a greater happiness. 
The College owes much to you for your loyal maintenance of its best tra- 
ditions, and it will proudly claim the service you are sure to render to the 
world in the years that are coming as one of its great treasures.

Marion D. Abbott 

"Cheerful and courteous, full of womanly grace." 

Here's a good beginning for the Class of '25. Friendly, depend- 
able and neat, that's Marion. As House Chairman and House Senior 
she was a success as in everything else she ever did. 

Marion always has a reason for everything she does, even to 
choosing the Home Ec. course and going home most every week-end. 

Have you ever heard Marion say "Just Plain ?" Ask her what 
her new dress or hat is like and that's all you ever find out unless 
you see for yourself. 

She says she is going to teach after she gets through. Maybe ! 
But not for long. We predict other things for Marion.

"Oh, Carolyn — can I speak with Ruth?" 

Something seems wrong ? It surely does, for you never saw 
Carolyn alone before — guess we'd better put "Ruth" right here, then 
everything's all right again. 

We predict great difficulty ahead for the Library and Secretarial 
Schools — they've just got to find o-ne place where an efficient secre- 
tary and an equally efficient librarian are needed, for we just can't 
imagine even a "life's work" separating these two chums. Best o' 
luck, Carolyn, in the two-in-one job !

Harriet Albee 

"A woman of strong intellectual powers.*' 

Harriet is one of those few who will go down as the brave sur- 
vivors of the General Science Course at Simmons. Any of us who 
have observed the gradual decrease in the number of Science students 
know that those who survive its biological, chemistryological and 
physieological mysteries are indeed to be named among the brave, 
and so we place Harriet in this select group of intelleetuelles.

"Glad" "Al" 

"We never heard her speak in haste, 
Her tones were sweet, 
And modulated just so much 
As it was meet." 

And that's the truth about Gladys Alcock, no matter what any 
one may tell you to the contrary, having seen her in some rare 
moments of excitement. If we had to give a definition of the word 
"lady." we'd put Gladys in somewhere as a perfect specimen. For she 
is. And that's that.

To err is human; to forgive, divine." 

Good things come in small packages, so they say, and that's 
surely Vivian. How she manages to pack so much jolly good humor 
into such a diminutive area is one of the seven wonders of Simmons. 
"Viv" had her troubles with beginning shorthand, but she's such a 
cheerful, undiscourageable soul, it's safe to say they'll make a secre- 
tary worthy of the title of Vivian yet.

have the best. Remember May Day, and Sophomore luncheon, not to 
mention the Wedding and our Christmas party? 

We were all mighty glad to have Myrtle "live in" this year, and 
wish she might have been with us all four years.

"As she thinkcth in her heart, so she is." 

Ask anyone who Marion is and the response is invariably "The 
best friend imaginable. Would do anything in the world for you. 
Yes, she has that breezy Western way." 

Nothing shows more clearly than just these few words how Marion 
has won the friendship of every one of us in the short two years she 
has been with us.

Perhaps these busy week-ends account for the fact that Madeline's

Or choose the melody that floats.

In her loftier moments she creates it with a mandolin — on less 
pretentious occasions she blows it on a harmonica. And what is this 
"it?" Just good fun and laughter. For four happy years "Badge" 
has held the record for provoking the most laughter of any girl here 
at Simmons. And the wonder of it all is you just can't get mad with 
"Badge" — not even if you hear her, at 6 A. M. yelling for that tooth- 
brush you heard her lose about 11.30 the night before.

"Can trouble live with Ajiril days, 
Or sadness in the summer moon?" 

Lost — one fiery temper which should go with Ebee's hair. "We've 
spent all year looking for it, but it is still unknown and undiscovered. 
Can it be that she is that phenomenon — a temperless Titian ? Whether 
that be true or not she does deserve a place in history, for in this 
day of shorn locks she not only has long tresses, but they've never 
even been cut! We've often been seized with the wild desire to snip 
just the littlest end off to see if the skies would fall or some other 
calamity occur. But we've never had the courage. Ebee has lived 
in just this year, and her dry humor has lightened many a party, and 
made us wish she'd tried it a little sooner.

"Knowledge comes to those who seek it." 


Those who know Ray will always think of her as a rather quiet, 
very loveable girl with an unlimited capacity for "select extra courses." 

She's the girl with that "school-girl complexion" and the weak- 
ness for loud stockings, who haunts the show-case on "off" hours. 

How she can chase way in from E. Bridgewater for an extra 
course every Saturday morning is more than we can make out!

Somebody should have called her "Blushes" for she does blush so

and can't quite find the word to fit. 

Everybody loves Nan with that soft, halting speech, and notes 
that leisurely "I'11-be-there-when I arrive" manner. And, of course, 
that smile — for Nan without a smile would never be complete.

reason for this is that she is just Charlotte. Capable, sunny, ready to

making good resolves.

Vague rumors have persisted during our four years together, of

be suddenly wakened by a douse of cold water, of numerous apple-pie 
beds, and tales of shoes that begin to walk under one's bed when one 
is half asleep. All these, and countless more, make us all view Anne's 
door with an eye of suspicion when we pass by and overhear sub- 
sided whispering with frequent bursts of giggling, for we all know 
that some mischief is brewing. But, Anne has her serious side too. 
She has the much envied talent of knowing how to appreciate good 
music, good drama and good books. Many a Saturday night sees 
Anne starting out for Symphony, Grand Opera or the Copley Theatre, 
and we know that not only will she enjoy it to the full, but that 
she will bring some of it back to us, in her praise and enthusiasm.

Anne is always living from one thrill to another, with only 
occasional interludes of the library practice to tie her down to earth, 
if you call it that, when she stands behind the desk of a library, filled 
with blue-smocked young men, who are more interested in that rippling

Billy's cool little voice and reserved manner, one would not suspect 
there would be room for guile, but, beware ! dear classmates, lest you

"She is high in all people's hearts.' 

Trudy is one of those all 'round good friends to everybody — no one

On almost every subject of conversation Trudy is a most moderate

"P-o-l-l-y- — Betty's waiting ! 

And as a rule Betty waits — or comes up four flights of stairs to 
investigate the causes for delay. 

It's only that Polly believes in making 'em wait! 

Polly is one of the members of '25 who deserted the Secretarial 
field to become an ardent Social Worker — and it was a distinct gain for 
the Social Service School when she changed, for Polly's quiet enthusi- 
asm will be a great asset to her in this kind of work.

If you have been to any of the Endowment Fashion Shows you 
have seen the graceful beauty of Laura. But do not think that the 
beauty is only skin deep, for she is one of the girls who in her quiet, 
modest way reveals unconsciously the dignity and sweetness of her 
character. Be it said in addition that she has a ready wit, and that 
it is used often for our betterment !

Not that all Callie's attention is turned toward that state — no, in-

"Forward she rushes with double glee 
hito the stream of revelry." 

Peg is the best antidote for a slow thinker that we can recom- 
mend. When Peg first came to Simmons she was a full-fledged Home 
"Ec-er," but how times change! If you were to hunt from here to 
the ends of the earth today you couldn't find a more ardent and en- 
thusiastic Social Worker than our same Peg of four years ago. We 
sometimes wonder if Home Ec won't come into its place again in Peg's 
life — we shouldn't be surprised.

She certainly is the greatest advocate of "atmosphere" we ever

"For she is happy as the day is long." 

Betty is one of the busiest members of the class. If she isn't 
doing one thing, it's another, and in spite of this Betty can always 
find time to do something else if some one asks her to. And as for good 
nature — no one ever saw Betty when she wasn't happy. In fact, there 
doesn't seem to be any room for unhappiness in her sunny disposition. 
We predict that this disposition is going to prove a valuable asset to 
Betty in her career as a secretary.

"J&y and mirth follow in her wake." 

Betty waited until Senior year before she joined us in the Dorms, 
but that didn't keep us from knowing her. Somehow, you get to know 
a prodigy, at least by sight, very readily. That's Betty. Evidently she 
never learned the alphabet beyond A-B and the instructors sympathize 
by giving her nothing else. We have to admit she deserves it though. 

She isn't so bad as this sounds. You can always depend on Betty 
for a good time and she is a sure cure for a case of blues. Betty 
deserves a good share of credit for making 4th floor North what it is

That's Dot, and don't ever suggest a thing you don't want her to do 
for she'll be sure to take you up. Feeling foolish ? Find Dot, and 
you'll soon be giggling. Feeling serious? Find Dot, and you can in- 
dulge in any kind of argument and discussion, for her little head holds 
any number of well-formed opinions. Feeling musical? Dot will 
strum her "uke" and hum any song you want. We all love her infec-

love her unreservedly morning, noon, and night.

more year, and we all hope that Gracie has learned to love us as much 
as she did the campus and life in Maine. And just a word to the wise 
— when Grace is apparently most serious she may be stringing you so 
beware of believing every word she says. It may bring about strange

"Though demure she may look

Those eyes may make us guess now, but wait until Jan gets in an 
office and tries to explain something to her boss. 

We don't know just what to expect from Jan. Will she be a 
private secretary for some big man, or a court stenographer {you 
know she is a whizz in Shorthand 80). Whatever she goes into she 
will make good, she's bound to. 

Don't for goodness sake think that all Jan does is work. I should 
say not ! You should see her swim and fish. Fish ? You probably 
have not heard about the one she hooked. We hope she will always 
hook such prizes. We wonder !

We've known "Gabby" was an earnest student of culinary art, but 
her interest in music has been of a more recent development. But 
perhaps you've heard Gabby oft in the stilly night — about 10 P. M. — 
crying- "Help South Hall Piano — Hot dogs and Lettuce Sandwiches !" 
You just can't resist even if you're broke — for how she can make 
sandwiches !

How could you do it. Glad? But there, we know you can do other 
things as well as play the perfect secretary — witness the trim little

You would have made such a good secretary though — why, you

"Sorry, I can't — but I've got a date tonight." 

We thought we had lost Marion last year when she decided to 
join the ranks of commuters, and we surely were glad — (even we who 
drew 150!) — when Marion drew a nice low number this year and came 
into South Hall to room with "Ping." 

We've got to admit we don't see much more of Marion now than 
we did last year, but there are always those few minutes when she's 
getting ready to go out!!! 

We're sure the Secretarial course is helping Marion in one big 
way at least — it teaches the gentle art of filing, or "how to keep 
track of current dates !"

There's not been a dance or a ball game, hardly an association or a

on. Does such versatility, such liberal tastes come from devouring 
cataloguing and the Dewey-Decimal System? If so, let's spend our

Cadsie with her usual discernment chose a roommate whose very

It took her some little time to become a full-fledged dorm student, 
but after exercising her "woman's privilege" she finally joined the 
"West House" crowd and we're happy to say lived in with us.

Ruth is that happy phenomena — the secretary who doesn't look 
the part. For to see Ruth casually stroll into Students' Room, attired 
in the very latest of creations, does not seem consistent with that Ruth 
who ten minutes later is hurriedly sticking in debits and credits on a 
long ledger sheet as if her very life depended on it. Ruth's a mighty 
good secretary in spite of these appearances to the contrary.

'When Irish eyes are smiling." 

In the words of the song, "If her eyes are blue as skies. That's — 
Helen !" When you see those deep blue eyes, you begin to believe all

"A second voice was at mine ear, 
A little whisper, silver-clear." 

Our most vivid recollections of Marge are all bound up with a 
Buick which awaits to carry her home to lunch. Consider the bliss of 
not wending one's weary way through the Dump, or just stepping on 
the gas to set up speed, and making the car pant instead of oneself ! 
Perhaps that's why Marge is always so calm, cool and collected when 
she enters those dreaded and hectic after-lunch classes. We'll never 
forget either that day she read Uncle Remits to us, and quite won us 
over to those delightful stories. But who wouldn't be captivated by 
anything read in that accent? And better still, did you ever hear of 
her experience playing golf?

Her favorite pastime — rocking. Phyl in a rocking chair equals

However, Phyl breaks loose from such domestic atmosphere now 
and then, to go to Yale house parties, B. U- Proms, and home occa- 
sionally. (She lives in Providence and so do Brown men, you know). 

There isn't much in size to Phyl, but when you hear her trilling

She's always spic and. span,

She beats a football fan. 
is for loveliness 

That shines forth night and day. 
is for loyalty, 

She's true-blue all the way. 
is for earnestness. 

She's surely no shirker, 
is for rarity. 

Can you find one like her?

"Ah showly doan kneow." 

If Anne had only been with us all four years instead of these few 
short months, a good many in the class would by now have acquired 
that delightful Southern drawl — (a good many think they've mastered 
it now, but they can't compare with the original!) 

Anne has an adorable way of er-ing her words, and once you've 
heard some one asking for a "booker," a "pener," or a "stamper," 
you'll know it's Anne, and you'll also know why we wish she'd been 
with us all four years.

Ruth Robinson 


''Ruth, the Rapid Miter." 

For nearly four years Ruth kept even her closest friends in the 
dark, then suddenly and quite without any premeditation whatsoever 
Rufus turns out to be the speediest p-b-ch-j-er in Senior Shorthand. 
(We don't feel that we should give any further secrets of this intri- 
cate speed exercise to the public, in case of patent rights, so we refer 
you to Dr. Eldridge. ) 

It is, however, the belief of these same close friends that Rufus' 
achievement is a result of a babyhood habit. She used to take a stick 
in her hand and spend hours drawing straight lines on the sands of 
Winthrop Beach.

"Perseverance conquers all things." 

"Kay" believes in making changes by wholesale. She wasn't 
satisfied with a mere change from Science to Sec. so she finished the 
job by getting rid of her surplus fat and tresses and becoming a 
slender, bobbed-hair secretary. 

But "Kay" can stick to a job and see it through with the best 
of them. It isn't the easiest thing in the world to change your course 
and catch up with the regulars, even if you do have "the nicest in-

"The will to do, the soul to dare. 7 

Whenever '25 wants entertainment it turns to Kate Rose. She has 
so much pep and originality that we could never think of giving a 
show without calling upon one of her numerous talents. Although 
always laughing and joking she has some serious moments, too, dis- 
played for instance by her able and efficient editorship of the Simmons 
News. When we look back on our four years of college life, Katie 
will always stand out as one of the most popular and attractive girls.

If you have something funny to tell, go to Louise and you'll find

solemn dignity which seems to be a requisite of the perfect librarian.

Thorndike is a staunch supporter of the theory, that "Perseverance

torture commonly known as the typewriter. It was a hard job to re- 
member it was a typewriter, and not a harmless little mandolin that 
was before her, but it is whispered around that Thorndike's speed on 
typeing is simply breath-taking at the present moment — no matter

Dot found the trip from Andover to Boston altogether too much 
for a dignified Senior, so, when the road from Haverhill also proved 
to be too long, Dot decided to join Norma and the other Dot, and took 
up her abode in South Hall. 

We're mighty glad Dot did live in Senior year, and between the

Helen is a very modern young lady. First and foremost she's a 
progressive and energetic Social Service worker. And did you hear 
about her political venture? Yes, indeed, Helen was the one in 
charge of getting ushers here at College for the big La Follette night 
here in Boston. 

Whether Social worker, politicianess, or both together, we're sure 
Helen's enthusiasm will carry her on to success.

"Sarge" has only been with us two years, and much of that time 
she has been hidden away in Somerset Street, but when we have any 
reason at all we insist upon having her with us. So it is that we feel 
that we have had her for all the four years of college. This rare power 
of making friends, and thereby making all those who know her better 
and finer for it, is a quality that only the truly blest may lay claim to.

"Good example is a true sermon." 

Simmons" definition of "edithselig" — large quantity of brains par- 
tially surrounded by girl (not wholly because they keep sticking out 
in plain view on all sides and there's no mistaking them ) . Edith 
never got beyond the first letter in the alphabet. Her education was 
evidently sadly neglected so far as the letters C, D, and E are con- 
cerned, for she never seems to know even what they look like.

Not that Sadie lets her dreams interfere with any of those top-

take much to start that live imagination of hers working over time. 
We love her for it, too, and we love her also when she's in that other

Marge has contributed no small amount of her time and pep 
toward making '25 what it is, and if she only knew it, she has a mighty

Marge plans to go into advertising. We predict a brilliant future 
for her and a happy one. How could it be otherwise with her wit

Al is one of the West House Quartet. The life of a commuter

Al breezes into every class with the inevitable, "What did we have for

she's sure to pop up with her inevitable "Yes, but — !" and then you

sole topic of conversation, and judging by the looks of her and her

Real liberty and happiness in this community where we are so closely 
associated for the four years that we spend as undergraduates, will always 
depend on each individual member of our group being willing to give up a 
few "rights" or pleasures for the good of others and for loyalty to the best 
interests of the college which is to be our Alma Mater. 

Freedom without responsibility would only be another example of the 
proverbial "ship without a sail" and as doomed ! Whether we can or can- 
not govern ourselves successfully would, therefore, seem to depend on how 
much we value the freedom which a successful self-government brings. 

This year another landmark has been passed in our progress. The op- 
portunity granted us through the kindness of the Administration of hav- 
ing an hour during the day on Friday, when Student Meetings could be 
held has meant that the Group Meetings to give that expression of "public 
opinion" which is the ideal of the representative government provided for 
in our Student Government Constitution, have been very successful. 

Let us always support our Student Government at Simmons. It is a 
real and ever-present way both to express some of the ideals that we want 
to guard so closely in connection with our college, and to develop the inde- 
pendence, lack of hypocrisy, and self -discipline which seem to grow out of 
the experience of going to college.

For nearly two years now, dormitory problems have been handled ac- 
cording to the provision in the new Constitution, by Dormitory Committee. 
This body incorporates Dormitory Government into Student Government 
by discussing the problems of the dormitories and offering recommenda- 
tions to Student Government Council, which then acts in the final decision. 

Dormitory Committee is a body composed of representatives from 
every dormitory, girls who can make the laws by which they live, can 
enforce them, and can change them. Its history last year is one of experi- 
ment and trial for this new system of things. The success achieved proved 
that the change had been needed and was wisely made. Although many 
of the initial difficulties are now a matter of past history and are forever 
smoothed out, Dormitory Committee is still in a stage of development, con- 
stantly meeting new problems, dealing with them, and becoming stronger 
in the process.

Our system of Student Government is composed of three governing 
bodies, the Dormitory Committee, Student Government Council, and the 
Conference Committee, each bearing a definite relation to the other. In 
the first two organizations, many problems are brought up and discussed 
by the students and solutions of these are sent to the Conference Com- 
mittee for suggestion or ratification. Here in the Conference Committee, 
ideas and opinions on college policies are voiced by the representatives of 
the faculty and students. 

The Conference Committee exerts a valuable influence on the Student 
Government organization. We extend our appreciation and gratitude to 
our most sympathetic and loyal faculty members who have assisted us so 
greatly in the furthering of the ideals of Student Government.

Endowment ! That seems a very familiar word here at Simmons, and 
it means a great deal. We have the first goal of Endowment by getting one 
million dollars. Students within the college, as well as the host of gradu- 
ates and friends, deserve great praise for what they have done. It means 
a lot, One Million Dollars ! 

The Simmons Spirit is gradually increasing each year, and soon will 
come the day when the College Spirit will not need to be discussed on each 
and every occasion for it will be a permanent institution. 

Simmons is getting older and bit by bit a strong bond of feeling for 
our wonderful college is growing, it is bound to grow, now as this grows 
we will need something to help it, and this "thing" is Endowment. Because 
we have one million dollars is a sure proof we can get two. Let every stu- 
dent help to start the next million !

This year Academy has had twelve undergraduate members. It would 
have been very hard for us few girls to make any progress at all towards 
the end for which Academy exists, were it not for the splendid help of our 
ten faculty members. Dr. Bolton and Miss Morse, former members of the 
faculty, who were active in the founding of Academy, have been most kind 
and helpful too. A census taken among Simmons Alumnae shows one 
hundred fifty members of Academy. We have tried to come closer to these 
members, for we want their interest. 

We have tried, this year, to make Academy more alive and alert by 
having monthly closed meetings, in addition to the three large open meet- 
ings. Each meeting has been under the charge of four members, and has 
been very informal. We are leaving this year to Simmons nine books — 
merely the nucleus of what we trust shall grow, with time, into a helpful 
little library. We do this in a desire to leave something really tangible be- 
hind us. 

Through these means, and also through our column in the Review, we 
have tried to keep before us the "ideal of keeping our wits as nimble as our

The Ellen Richards Club is the student Science Club of Simmons. 

It was founded in 1920, and its membership includes Juniors and 
Seniors in the General Science School and Seniors pursuing a thesis course 
in Biology, Chemistry or Physics. 

Though these requirements for admission limit its membership to a 
comparatively small number, Ellen Richards Club has acquired a tradition 
of fine comradeship among its members, and a reputation for the genuine 
good times it manages. 

To further interest in Science, the Club arranges to have speakers talk 
on subjects of general scientific interest at meetings which are usually 
open to the whole student body.

The Association stands for Co-operation, Sociability and Service in 
the fullness of their meaning and significance from a Christian viewpoint. 
A well-rounded college life of working and playing together will inevitably 
develop us intellectually, socially, physically, — and spiritualy. It is this last 
development which Y. W. wants to help; to give us something to use not 
only in our student life but — always. Spiritual development is an essen- 
tial part of our lives. We must not forget to grow spiritually, to grow in 
breadth of mind, in capacity for service, to give the best, to live the best ! 

We feel the success of the fine co-operation which the Menorah girls 
have shown in our joint meetings and are looking forward to a very inter- 
esting program with them. A great deal of thanks is due to the Social 
Service Committee for the splendid results of their work, especially for the 
Thanksgiving baskets. As for Christmas Vespers — may we always carry 
with us that spirit of love, loyalty and f viendship !

The past year our club has grown and our meetings have been most 
successful. We have met on the first Tuesday of each month in North 
Hall, and after a talk or lecture have spent a pleasant time getting ac- 
quainted over our teacups. 

Simmons needs this Unitarian organization, because there are a large 
number of Unitarian girls in the college. Boston being the center of Uni- 
tarianism, we have been fortunate in securing many fine speakers. Our 
speakers have not confined their talks entirely to religious subjects, but in 
many cases to other topics of equal importance to the college girl, as the 
Youth Movement, the Labor Party in England and others. 

The organization does not restrict its membership to Unitarians, nor 
is a pledge of any sort required to be signed. We have had several inter- 
ested Universalists and we have been and always shall be glad to welcome 
girls who are in any way interested in liberal Christianity. 

The organization extends its very heartiest good wishes to the of- 
ficers for the coming year, and wishes them the greatest success.

To the Christian Science girls at Simmons the Christian Science So- 
ciety means an organization through which they can become better ac- 
quainted with the Science girls in college. But more than this, it gives 
them an opportunity to get in touch with other college societies all over the 
country and receive notice of their activities. This is a great help to the 
society as all the organizations are working for the same end — to increase 
the feeling of friendship and co-operation, not only among Scientists, but 
among all members of their college. 

Meetings of the society are held every Thursday in the Students' 
Room, and are open to all who are interested to attend.

Newman Club has a definite place and purpose in the college life of 
its members. It is the one means by which we who have common religious 
ideals may know each other and associate together. 

This association, we trust, may help us in all our college pursuits, both 
intellectual and social, and may instill into us a better appreciation of our 
college and the loyalties involved. 

The Newman Club has for its guidance the inspiring character of 
Cardinal Newman, the great churchman. From this noble man we bor- 
row not only his name, but also his religious aims and ideals.

In addition to maintaining the aim of Menorah — to perpetuate Jewish 
light and culture — Simmons Menorah has this year tried to assume the 
broader aspect of perpetuating not only the Hebrew spirit, but also the 
spirit of all culture and all humanity. This is not an entirely new phase 
of Menorah, but it has been given a great impetus very recently. 

In this modern age of criticism, Menorah has received its share ot 
discussion, and the need of Menorah is now a clearly established fact. The 
meaning and spirit of Menorah, its symbol and its light, shall ever remain 
lofty, and it is earnestly hoped that the future upholders and workers of 
Menorah shall live up to its height !

The Review, a pile of gray-covered magazines appearing as if by 
magic on the Hall Table the first of every month, a pile decreasing slowly 
but surely until every student has one to glance through or to read care- 
fully, as she may desire, and then — forgotten until the next month. The 
whole process is so quiet and unobstrusive that it creates little more than 
a ripple in the waters of school activities. Outwardly its influence is not 
very apparent, but we hope that it exerts an unconscious one, that it fur- 
nishes a firm and solid foundation upon which to build a finer spirit of 
service for Simmons. We feel that The Review is a silent, permeating 
force, the embodiment of all that is best in Simmons, the spirit of our col- 
lege, the "singing voice" of the students, the common meeting place of 
all interested in Simmons — students, alumnae, and faculty — where each 
one may present his own interests, where each may come to know the 
other better, and where all may be bound more closely together in love 
for Simmons.

Our weekly paper, the Simmons News, is one of the youngest and also 
one of the most popular organizations in college. Two years ago, when 
the publishing of a weekly newspaper was suggested, the students were 
very enthusiastic, and this enthusiasm has kept up as the paper has grown. 

Last year the work of the News Staff was to help the paper to grow 
and establish itself as a Simmons tradition. This year, with enough names 
on our subscription list to assure us of the interest of the students, we 
have tried to improve the literary standard of the paper, and to make it of 
interest to all the different groups in college. If the paper has succeeded 
in bringing these groups closer together and arousing interest in college 
affairs and in the college as a whole, it will have accomplished its purpose.

This year marked a new era in the history of Honor at Simmons. In 
this field, as in all branches of human activities, this reaction to existing 
policies manifested itself in an attempt to analyze and clarify this system 
in its true significance. 

During the first term there seemed to be a general lack of enthusiasm. 
This, in addition to the fact that the result of the voting for proctorial 
exemption indicated either a feeling of dissatisfaction or a need for enlight- 
enment on the subject, awakened the Honor Board to the realization that 
something should be done. Consequently they decided to arrange a pub- 
licity program. January 12th-16th was set aside for this purpose. 

As a result of the Debate and the Group Meetings is was shown that 
the present system did not satisfy the majority, preference being given to 
the new code which the Honor Board had proposed with certain amend- 
ments and corrections. These criticisms and suggestions were accepted 
and changes were made accordingly. In addition to this, an entirely differ- 
ent system was drawn up and both were submitted to the entire Student 
Body for approval, with the idea of putting into effect the one receiving 
the highest number of votes.

The Home Economics Club commenced its activities for this, its sec- 
ond year, at a delightful tea given by Miss Blood for Miss Bane and Miss 
Haugh. Through the year the enthusiasm of its members — the Instruc- 
tors, Juniors, Seniors, and Special Students in the School of Household 
Economics, was shown by the large attendance at the business meetings, 
trips to nearby plants, and interesting talks by prominent people. Open 
meetings were also well attended by interested outsiders. 

The Club aims to provide a point of contact between the Simmons 
Home Economics Club and the activities in this field outside College. We 
are members of the American Home Economics Association, and have been 
raising money for the Ellen Richards Fund, an income fellowship, by mak- 
ing cakes and sandwiches to sell, and by serving teas to other organiza- 

We were proud to have two delegates at the National Convention in 
Buffalo — Laura Beltz, '25 and Mary Reed, '25. 

The wealth of material and opportunities of the Club are unlimited. 
It is sure to grow steadily and successfully in succeeding years.

"When you're out you want to shout and tell the world about it!" — 
"That's fine," says Press Board, but a little good newspaper publicity while 
you're here will mean a lot more to Simmons in the end. "Better publicity 
for Simmons" is the motto of Press Board, and to that end her reporters 
hunt news madly, pound typewriters, and chase photographers with per- 
sistence — persistence being one of the many requirements of a good news 

Long have Simmons girls been discontented and now and then they 
will burst out indignantly — "Why are we never in the New York Times? 
You'd think Wellesley and Smith were the only colleges in the country." 
The answer is simple — look at their wonderfully organized press boards. 
Competition for publicity among colleges runs high in the East, and 
strange though it may seem, it is in the East and not the West that Sim- 
mons most needs publicity. 

Press Board is new, the newest of the organizations that Student Gov- 
ernment has sponsored. The odds were against us when we started, but 
there is a certain thrill about news work, — the office downtown, a scrap

with the "boss" over a twisted article, and finally "Simmons" in print — 
that we were carried along and even our mistakes (and they were many) 
seem funny now. A great deal of our success is due to Miss Babcock, our 
faculty member. Through her we have been able to get the all-important 
faculty and administration news — and without her suggestions and en- 
couragement, our work would have been done on a much smaller scale. 

The field of publicity is a big one, and we hope that this year will be 
but a beginning of a long career of service to Simmons. 

Press Board offers great opportunities for students who like to write, 
who have ideas, who are interested in Simmons, and who want to make a 
little money on the side — and in the future it should have a large following. 
For years — 'tis almost too shocking to admit — Simmons' publicity has 
rested in the hands of one or two ambitious students that were clever with 
their pens, and on the lookout for extra money. With the present interest 
in journalism, and the Boston editors alive to the fact that we have good 
news, Simmons will take her place among her rivals — gain the front page 
for other than scandal, and even invade the notoi'ious "Brown Section."

The Student Forum of Simmons College is organized to promote in- 
terest in current topics, to keep the student body informed on questions of 
science, politics and literature, and to stimulate group discussion in the 
various dormitories by providing popular speakers. 

This year our Forum is represented on an Executive Committee called 
together by liberal clubs of the colleges in and around Boston. This Board 
meets to compare the progress made in the different colleges in the com- 
mon interest of intellectual inquiry, the object being to help each other to 
obtain the best speakers and to keep closely in touch with student activi- 

The chief aim of Forum is to arouse an intelligent opinion by focusing 
the student searchlight on movements of vital importance in the life of 
both scholar and citizen.

Despite the shock of 

Really knowing the truth?

That Mic was

On December 4, 5, and 6, the Intercollegiate Dramatic Association 
held its annual Conference at Mt. Holyoke, and Simmons was invited to 
send delegates and to become a member of the Intercollegiate Association. 
We sent Cordelia Curtis and Vida Buist, and from that Conference we 
learned what the Dramatic Clubs at other colleges were doing and thus 
gained many new ideas for our plays and meetings. 

Dramatics had never had a constitution, so this year we decided to 
write one, and it was from the Conference that we got the idea of changing 
our association by adding the honorary society "The Mummers." 


1925 :: :: :: DRAMATICS 

At our open meeting in January, we were most fortunate in having 
Clayton Hamilton speak on Sheridan's "Rivals" which was then celebrat- 
ing the 150th anniversary, or as he liked to express it, the sesquicentennial, 
of its first performance. Mr. Hamilton's clever wit, his love of words and 
his whimsical personality made him most "personable." 

Another honor for Dramatics was the party given by Miss Nichols, a 
member of the Simmons Council. Twenty-five girls who had done a lot of 
work for Dramatics were invited, and such a delightful evening as we 
spent at Miss Nichols' home. It was not only a big treat to hear a Russian 
prince play a Stradivari violin, but we all felt like princesses being enter- 
tained in an Italian palace. 

On February 14 the one-act plays were given. It was the first time 
the Freshmen had performed and they certainly made a name for them- 
selves in "Chinese Love." And the Sophomores and the Juniors added 
lam*els to the fame they had gained last year.

We wonder, if the urge for "self expression" which is so popular these 
days, possibly explains why sixty odd girls have trudged up four flights of 
stairs to Library B every Monday for Glee Club rehearsal. 

In any event the results of this hard work were apparent at our vari- 
ous public appearances. True to custom we did our share at Convocation, 
Christmas Vespers, and Commencement, half strangled, as usual, by the 
tight, high collars of the choir robes. We had our Annual February Con-

The Mandolin Club, after a most faithful season of practice and the 
inevitable "after eighth" rehearsals, made its musical debut in a joint con- 
cert with the Glee Club. 

The Club has had a most successful year, and one in which the mem- 
bership shows an appreciable increase and a keener enthusiasm than ever. 
No doubt, the enthusiasm and hearty co-operation of each and every mem- 
ber in attending rehearsals and in taking a personal interest in the affairs 
of the Club, has been due in no small part to the capable direction of Mr. 
Rice, to whom we all give a vote of thanks for his tireless efforts to make 
our Club a success.

S. A. A. this year has been bigger and better than ever. Although the 
hope of participating in intercollegiate athletics is yet far from being real- 
ized, still you can't keep a good man down, and more energy has been put 
into the interclass games as a result. 

The hockey season aroused more interest than it has for some years, 
clue to advertisement. Posters announcing the games gained everybody's 
attention, and in this way, audiences were persuaded to brave the icy cold- 
ness of the Back Yard to cheer on the teams. 

Two very exciting games were played between the Juniors and Fresh- 
men. As the first was a tie, there was, contrary to the usual customs of S. 
A. A., a second game, which the Juniors won with a score of 1-0. The teams 
were well-matched and full of fight, and the games deserve special notice. 

Something new in the basketball line was the holding of special begin- 
ners' and general practice in the period between Thanksgiving and exams. 
The practice was very successful, as witness the better playing after 

The big archery target in the gym attracted much attention in the fall, 
but no archery practice was held because of the cold weather. This branch 
of athletics is sure to expand. Even Simmons had to be a baby once. 

A successful campaign for new members was carried on during the 
fall. The Freshmen responded well — in fact, they have shown good spirit 
in all lines of S. A. A.

At the beginning of the year we began to fear that hockey was a total 
loss at Simmons, but as time went on we found that it was as popular as 
ever. No ! Hockey is not a dead sport at Simmons and we have faith to 
believe that as long as our college lasts, hockey will hold its own among 
our many activities. 

We were coached this year by Miss Leach and Miss Diall and we ap- 
preciate the fact that it was mainly through their untiring efforts that the 
hockey season was a success. In spite of almost zero weather, the games 
were played off with the following results : 

Seniors vs. Sophomores, 1-2, Sophomores winning 
Juniors vs. Freshmen, 2-2 

Isabelle Eveleth was presented with the hockey cup for the best 
player, by vote of all four classes. The class cup was not awarded as the 
match was never played off.

Tennis singles cup awarded to 1925. 

Tennis this year was favored with a pleasant fall which added zest 
to the snappy games we had. We had a great many contestants who en- 
tered right into the tennis spirit. 

The finals came off one beautiful day without a sign of rain. Pre- 
ceding these were the semi-finals in which 1925 defeated 1926, and 1927 
did the same to 1928. In the finals 1925 came out on top, smiling and

Basketball ! Why, it is the best sport of all the year ! Many may pre- 
fer out-of-door sports, but even so, basketball always seems to draw a 
large number of contestants from each class. 

This year the Freshmen could hardly contain themselves because of 
their enthusiasm and, no wonder, for their ability was surpassed only by 
their wonderful spirit. The other classes brought forth old-timers, and 
some new players joined the ranks of the "finest sport of all." 

Every one feels that it was a mighty successful season, for a great 
deal of class spirit was shown in coming out to practices and games and 
each class bore her defeats and victories as a "good sport" should. The 
teams would like to express their appreciation of Miss Diall's patience and 
excellent support and apologize for any trials and tribulations which they 
caused her from time to time.

Life Saving classes started off with a lot of pep this fall. Forty new 
girls came out to try their prowess in gaining membership to the corps, 
the chief objects being to win one-third of a point credit in the Athletic 
Association, which each girl is given as soon as she satisfactorily completes 
the tests and also to become eligible to compete for the shield which was 
given to us last year by the American Red Cross. 

Last spring at the annual meet between the different classes at the 
Cambridge pool this shield which is over two feet in length was given to 
the Class of 1925 for having the highest number of points in the different 
speed races. 

Beginning last year and continuing for ten consecutive years this 
shield will be competed for annually in a meet. To compete for this a girl 
must be a member of this Life Saving Corps. The classes have been under 
the direction of Esther Holbrook, captain ; Louise Miller, first mate, and 
supervised by Captain Jack Wallace of the Boston Red Cross.

We can peer into the mystic crystal of the future with unbounded 
hopes — but never, never shall we behold again that picture of the irrespon- 
sible joy of youth that our Freshman Frolic portrayed for us. 

Be-rompered, be-curled, be-ribboned and be-foolished, we played again 
the games of childhood, and after playing and dancing to the merry tunes 
of the Hurdy-Gurdy Man, all the little boys and girls rushed for the hot 
dogs, the ice cream cones and lollipops. Surely the real good-fairy of 
childhood watched over us that day or how would our constitutions have 
survived such shameful treatment ! ? !

Dusky shadows, 

Terrors of the unknown Fenway. 

Bravely scouting 

Lest the Juniors 

Watching, guarding 

Find our haunts, 

And break our lines. 

Never ! never !

Into trucks we tumbled, hurried 

Hampered by our ghostly wrappings. 

Thus we rode in stately silence 

To South Hall and Victory! 

Autumn leaves — 

Dusky shadows, 

Terrors of the Fenway — vanquished. 

Far and wide we guard the entrance 

To the inmost doors and passes. 

Unlit street cars are uncommon ; 

Junior scouts alert and watchful.

Bare down Sophomores — 

Now we ask in great amazement, 

Did they think they had a chance?

Let me take you back in memory to a day not long ago. It is lilac time 
and lilac colors send a soft and cheery glow on the scene before us spread. 

Our Sophomore Luncheon was served under the proud and watch- 
ful eye of our big White Elephant and it was there that every Sophomore 
pledged unending loyalty to the class — our class of 1925. 

Speeches and songs made the afternoon pass all too quickly and when 
at the end, dainty Pierrette and her devoted Pierrot entertained us, we 
wondered when dusk had so suddenly descended upon us, why such 
happy days must always come to an end.

Always anxious to do something new, 1925 decided to attempt a new 
form of entertainment for the May Queen ; so the comic opera "Robin 
Hood" was presented on the royal campus. 

This presentation was a thorough success and won high praise from 
the King, Queen and guests. 

Besides the delightful opera, King Kay and Queen Eleanor witnessed 
the May-pole dance and last, but far from least, every one partook of that 
sovereign food of foods

A late autumn wedding which attracted much interest among the 
social circles of Greater Boston and Brookline was that of Miss Betty 
Vingt Huit and Mr. Gaily Vingt Cinq. The ceremony was performed at 
the Refectory, Simmons College, Boston, Massachusetts. 

The bride was charmingly attired in a gown of white satin and her 
veil of old Venetian lace was exquisitely caught in a coronet of pearls. She 
was attended by Miss Dorothy Twenty-Eight as Maid of Honor and six 
bridesmaids, all classmates of the bride. 

Mr. Vingt Cinq had for his best man Mr. Marge Twenty-Five and his 
ushers were college classmates. 

The Reverend Mr. Peirce performed the ceremony in the presence of 
a large gathering of relatives and friends who assembled from all parts of 
the country. 

This marks the second brilliant wedding in the Vingt Cinq family — 
Mrs. Sloaty Vingt Trois, nee Dorothy Vingt Cinq, whose wedding was one 
of the big events of the 1921 social calendar, was among the noted guests at 
her brother's wedding.

Off to Rowe's Wharf bright and early, 

Fearing then lest we be late ; 
How we rushed our Senior Sisters, 

For you know a boat won't wait. 

On we tumbled, frantic, hurried, 

Camp stools packed from stern to bow; 

Here's the last one running madly, 
There's the whistle — off we go. 

Every Junior had beside her 

A most mysterious covered basket. 

What does that mean here at Simmons? 
Just one grand old word — Nantasket. 

O'er the bounding waves we flew, 
And quickly to the shore drew near. 

Guess they knew we all were coming 
Yes ! that's music that we hear. 

First of all the white beach rang 
With joyous shouts of laughter. 

But there's one thing calls strongest 
We must leave the rest till after. 

Only one thing filled our thoughts 

And that was the luscious, tempting food 

Packed in the Juniors' baskets — 
Oh ! but everything was good ! 


192 5 


All the things from out the baskets 
Every Senior thought was grand, 

For who cares on a picnic 

Whether she's munching food or sand? 

Bathing? Yes the brave ones tried it, 
They were surely brave and bold. 

Though they stayed but just a second, 
They shivered for hours with the cold ! 

'Twas the first day of the season, 
Everything was opened wide — • 

Witching waves and hobby horses, 
Shoot-the-shoots and funny slides. 

Laughing gaily, round we traveled, 

Trying everything in sight, 
Roller-coasters, gum and candy, 

Oh! we were just awful sights. 

Time to go, how could we leave it? 

Back to town we had to go ; 
Seniors lingered, Juniors called them 

Always happy times end so. 

Weary, tired out beyond measure, 
Home we trudged our silent way, 

Thinking as the twilight deepened: 
"Was there ever a more happy day?"

Jack 0' Lanterns, apples, cider, doughnuts, and "Sarah of the Sahara" 
— those are memories of the Senior Housewarming. North Hall basement 
never had looked quite so cozy and festive and when Miller-Rose & Com- 
pany presented their interpretation of the previously mentioned bit of 
literature, we feared that Mr. Ziegfeld or Cecil DeMille might rob us of 
our talented members. 

Esther Holbrook in the role of fortune teller gave us vague apprehen- 
sions and thrills in regard to the future. Then a regular peanut-hunt with 
a prize, — the presentation of a jug of cider and a cake to the respective 
winners, brought to a close our first party as full-fledged Seniors.

Student Government Party — that solemn moment when those who 
have so successfully borne the responsibilities and carried on the activities 
of a college year turn to those following, relinquish their burdens and en- 
trust them to others to be taken in like manner. 

But did we ever realize that '25 was to take her place in the line and 
that we as Seniors were to take over the work and honors that '24 had so 
admirably carried? Not until that solemn moment when President 
Lefavour congratulated 1924 on their successful completion of four college 
years and encouraged 1925, especially those on whom special honors had 
been bestowed, to carry on this work, did we realize that we had touched 
upon the threshold of our Senior year. 

But all was not solemnity — who could be solemn for long and see 
tables creaking with lobster salad and ice cream, not to mention olives 
and such? No, — even the rain and the consequent rush to the refectory 
could not dampen our spirits. And when the evening came to an end with 
everyone singing Alma Mater, we all fervently hoped that we might be 
worthy to take our places in the line of Seniors before us.

Because we love the Steps, 

We bring our tribute — 

The flowers of our tender thoughts and memories — 

To lay beside the garlands 

Withered now, though fragrant, 

That girls of other years, who loved the Steps, 

Have brought before us. 

How often in the afterglow of sunset, 

Under the swaying branches 

Of friendly tree and vine, 

Down the familiar pathways — 

Laughing — gaily — 

We came to blend our voices with the many 

In all the old, familiar College anthems. 

Rollicking songs and sad ones 

There we rendered, 

Melodies old and sweet, and joyous ditties 

That brought a twinkle to the eye and laughter with them. 

None were forgotten as we stood there 

Singing, together, on the Steps. 

Never in all the years to come can we forget them, 

Those evening hours we spent so happily ; 

The black-gowned ranks of Seniors, friendly, earnest ; 

The groups of underclassmen, eager, gay; 

The shadows gathering slowly 

Under the trailing vines ; 

The sweet girl voices — 

Ah, what does singing on the Steps not mean to us, 

We Seniors, who must soon be far away ! 




^nttnr Frolic 

The Senior Frolic was a most successful innovation in the way of 
social events at Simmons. 

The Frolic was really a Cabaret, and the tiny tables with their single 
lighted candles transformed the Refectory into a real Greenwich Village 

What could have been more appropriate than the Tango interpreted 
by "Babe" and Marion? The grace and beauty of the dancers as they 
glided back and forth before the red and white lights made us wonder if 
some real professional dancers had been secretly engaged to entertain. 

And the story of the Romance of John Simmons, taken from the Old 
Family Album set us into gales of laughter. The exquisite gowns of the 
ladies — the delightful little bathing suits — we understand now why Dress- 
making is included in our college curriculum. 

Perhaps the Tango is an appropriate form of entertainment at a 
Cabaret — but the Apache dance is absolutely inevitable. Ever see a movie 
of a cabaret without Apache dancers? — Then it wasn't a cabaret! Max 
and Diz were just great and we certainly take our hats off to the artistic 
soul who designed the costumes they wore ! 

All in all we, as a class, feel we started something worth while when 
we introduced a Cabaret to Simmons, and we feel sure that this is but a 
forerunner of many similar entertainments to come — we certainly recom- 
mend it as "the very nicest way to have a class party!"

We dance, we sing, we promenade, 

And all these things do merrily, 
There's always work — long and hard 

To balance such frivolity. 

It's along this idea of balancing things 
That we printed the following pages, 

To show that in spite of our caps, gowns and rings, 
Sometimes Seniors don't act their ages. 

On the following pages you now will see, 

Bereft of their titles and glories, 
The honored, esteemed Simmons Faculty 

And some of their funniest stories. 

And, too, you will find there along with the rest, 
In a hodge-podge of joy and despair, 

The memories we'll cherish as some of the best 
From past days, full of joy, free from care.

And there were in the same College, maidens toiling in their rooms, 
making talk over their books by night. 

And the Editor-in-Chief of Mic appeared before them, and the pre- 
monition of her words weighed down upon them and they were sore dis- 

And the Editor said unto them, "Arouse thee, for, behold, I bring you 
strict orders of great weight, which shall be to you only. For unto you I 
give this day, in the sight of these present, a duty which shall be to write 
for our great Book that section which is known to all as Microchaos." 

And suddenly there came to the maidens a multitude of the wittiest 
thoughts, and they said, hopeful, smiling, "That will we do for you gladly. 
Just leave it to us !" And she left them. And it came to pass, as the 
Editor was gone away from them to her slumber, that the maidens said 
one to another, "Let us tomorrow go even unto the Faculty, and seek their 
aid for this thing which the Editor hath passed on to us." 

And they went with haste to their curlers, that they might on the mor- 
row bring it to pass as they had spoken. 

And it came to pass, very early in the morning, that the maidens went 
in to the Faculty, and behold, the Faculty was not in its office. 

And the maidens returned, groaning greatly, and said one to another, 
"Never mind, we will go once again during lunch hour." And they did as 
they had said, but behold, the Faculty was not in its office. 

Then were the maidens exceeding anxious and deep lines appeared in 
their foreheads. And the maidens cried out in their anguish, and they 
went to their classmates which had had A's in English, and said unto them, 

"Write us, we pray thee, something which is witty, that we may now 
add to the Chaos and bless thee forever." 

And the classmates sighed deeply. 

And the maidens went once again to the Faculty, and the Faculty was 
not in its office. 

And it came to pass, as the evil day drew nigh when the section should 
be sent to the Printer, that the maidens sat down in their boudoirs, to write 
then the jokes that had once lodged within them. 

And, behold, it came to pass, that the Muse which had urged them de- 
parted hence and they could write nothing. 

Then did despair come upon them, and anxiety visited them, and there 
was wailing and gnashing of teeth — the maidens weeping for their chaos 
and would not be comforted because it was not. 

And on the morrow they rose up early in the morning and went once 
more unto the Faculty, and, behold, the Faculty was in its office. And the 
maidens found favor in the sight of the Faculty, and the Faculty promised 
them that thing which they desired. 

And there was great rejoicing among the maidens, and their heads had 
rest seven nights.

'Honderfi nf tlir Ancient Unrla' 

By Robert M. Gay 
(With illustrations by the author.) 

The boys and girls of the nineties, 
They seem, so quaint to those 

Who are boys and girls in the twenties, - 
But it was mostly clothes. 

The Red Queen (so she told Alice) trained her mind by believing six impossible 
things every day before breakfast. I wish, dear children, to offer you a specimen exer- 
cise in believing. 

It has just occured to me that I, too, was in Arcadia, — I mean in college, — exactly 
a quarter of a century ago. That was before most of you had even been born. It is 
not your fault, of course, that you never lived through the same remarkable period I 
did, or saw the sights I saw. It is simply your misfortune, and you must bear it as well 
as you can. I merely ask you to remember that, though you may have all kinds of ad- 
vantages — such as youth, beauty, intelligence, and so forth and so forth — over those of 
us who were growing up in eighteen-eighty, there is one advantage that you can never 
take from us, try as you will. You never saw a stout gentleman riding on a high 

I tried to draw a picture of that stout gentleman, but it was a scene beyond the 
reach of art, — my art, anyhow. And before I go on, I must tell you about my pictures. 
You may find this hard to believe, but I once really took lessons in drawing'. The 
trouble was that my instructor, though a dear old man, would never let me draw any- 
thing but Apollo and Venus. You will agree, after you have carefully studied my pic- 
tures, that Apollo and Venus did not help me much. Nor was that all. I never got so 
far as to draw all of Venus or Apollo, but only one of their noses, ears, eyes, or feet; 
and as a consequence I never learned how to put these together. It is one thing to draw 
a nose all alone, like an island in a sea of white paper, and another thing altogether to 
put that nose exactly where it belongs in a face. If I had only gone on a year or two 
longer! But I did not, and therefore I have never been quite certain about the longi- 
tude of a nose or the latitude of an ear, and am always getting the one too far east or 
west and the other too far north or south. I had a terrible time with my picture's, and 
I hope that you will appreciate them. 

You have probably heard a great deal from elderly persons about the wonders of 
the nineteenth century, but you must not believe quite all you hear. In 
the eighties and nineties, college students did not always prepare their 
lessons, nor did they spend all their leisure time discussing Art, Liter- 
ature, History, and Philosophy. They could occasionally unbend, 
though, looking at their clothes, you may not see how they could un- 
bend very far. 

The fact is that away back in 1887 they considered themselves 
remarkably up-to-date. Odd, isn't it? And yet it is so. In 1887, I 
had scarlet fever, and so I can remember the year vividly. Since mine 
was a light case, it affected nothing but my disposition, which was 
pronounced unspeakable ; but I had many hours in which to look out 
of the window and I saw many sights. Take this very stately lady of 
that year, for example. She used to pass our house every Sunday and 
I often looked at her from the front-parlor window with a feeling of 
awe, such as steals over one when standing on a wharf and watching 
an ocean-liner go by. She considered herself quite ultra-ultra. The 
architectural arrangement of her skirt was alone a triumph, as you 
will agree. How she managed this I shall have to leave to you to 
guess, only suggesting that those who deny to Woman ability in 
mechanical invention should study this picture. 

Golf came in about 1890, but not in this country. The picture on a very stately lady 
the left is of an English maiden, and is taken from London Punch as of 1887 on her 
an example of the vulgar mannishness that was corrupting the girls g h g y is 'carryin^^a 
of the day. But that the corruption did not spread very rapidly is prayer-book.

bottom of her dress is her foot. 

proved by the portrait of a young lady of 1895, the year (I have just looked this up in 
a fashion-book) of the bell-shaped skirt and the manche a gigot or, as the frivolous 
called it, the leg-o'-mutton sleeve. The young lady (on the right), I would have you 
understand, is STYLISH. Her dress is of purple velvet with black trimmings, her hat 
bright green, with purple wings, and her gloves and parasol white. Her skirt sweeps 
the ground with an interesting sivish 
and, since she is walking in the coun- 
try, raises a perceptible cloud of dust. 
But her hair is golden, her eyes are 
blue, her lips red, and there are 
plenty of young men who stand ready 
to fall in love with her. 

And now let us turn to nineteen 
hundred, the year in which I was 
graduated. By that time women had 
proved conclusively that they had 
BRAINS. The women's colleges, be- 
coming daring, introduced inter- 
collegiate debating, and some of the 
more intellectual debaters had al- 
ready acquired the forensic manner. 
I have tried to suggest this manner in 
my drawing. This young lady is all 
a flapper of 1889, all dressed up for the occasion, and one 
«c a e dy her° r athS b^ aspects that, she is employing the 
entirely illegitimate argument of out- 
shining her opponents in appearance. The judges — men, of A young lady of 1895. out for a 
course — could hardly have rendered an unbiased verdict, 
after they had seen this lavender gown with terra cotta 
trimmings and a green guimpe (I got this word from my wife) and collar. Her au- 
burn hair, you will admit, is a creation all alone. Yes, that protuberance on top is part 
of her hair. The history of a young lady's hair is very remarkable. I have just looked 
it up and find that, about 1889, most of it lay on the nape of her neck; and then, year 
by year, it crept up, up, up, until it reached the aspiring position here shown. It then 
moved forward until, in 1907, it overshadowed her eyes and, surmounted by a "picture 
hat," presented an indescribable

while, the man with the ball recited the list of bones, which he had learned in school, 
wondering which would give way first. Yes, it was a truly great game. I forgot to say 
that head-gears were as yet considered effete, though nose-guards were used (that is a 
nose-guard, not a nose, in the picture) ; and football men therefore never cut their hair. 
As for the intellectual man, what is there to say? You may not believe that college- 
men really wore derbies, but I can tell you a stranger fact than that. I went to school, 
in the eighth grade, with a boy who wore a derby! What do you think of that? And in 




A football player of the nine- 
ties, showing the style of coif- 
fure in vogue. 

the same class were three brothers who always wore bright red stockings. A remark- 
able century, the nineteenth! The youth in the picture seems to have very broad shoul- 
ders, but, as I say in my rhyme, they are "mostly clothes." 
If he should take off his coat, you would be surprised. In 
my day it was the mark of an intellectual man to read Ib- 
sen, and he would gladly sit up all night arguing that Nora 
was entirely justified in running off. He was also usually 
a SOCIALIST, a CYNIC, and a WOMAN-HATER; though 
if you knew him well, you could often detect a certain asit- 
wereness or sotospeakity in his expression of opinion. 

Of course, we had dances, usually organized by the 
sporting element, who were not woman-haters, — not in the 
least. We danced, mostly, what was known as a two-step, 
a kind of lope. Just hum "Rock-a-by, baby, on the tree- 
top," and you will catch the rhythm of the two-step. For 
those Who knew how to dance, we had an occasional waltz, 
schottische, or polka and for those who had only learned 
to walk, a "square dance," such as the lancers or quadrille. 
Quaint, old-fashioned gyrations these were, but a simple age enjoyed them. The sport- 
ing men were as a rule not as sportive as they wished other people to think they were. 
In the nineties we were all trying, more or less, to be Bohemian, and the special mark 
of a college Bohemian was to own a stein. Is it necessary to ex- 
plain that a stein is — I mean, was — an earthenware mug with a 
gj ~*p lid. You held this in your hand and sang the Stein Song. The 

wffflffl stein might be empty or might contain only hot cocoa, but when 

;W/ you came to the chorus — 

For it's always fair weather, 
When good felloivs get together, 
With a stein on the table, 
And a good song ringing clear! 

you waved it in the air and banged it on the table. It is sur- 
prising how Bohemian this made one feel ! I have tried to ex- 
press the feeling in my picture. These two young men' are 
making what we called "close harmony."

THE MICROCOSM :: :: :: 1925 


Extract from an old student's letter — 

"I am engaged in the occupation for which I am most admirably fitted, 
both by nature and inclination — absolutely nothing. I am loafing — fla- 
grantly and shamelessly. I think there is no more delightful way of pass- 
ing time than this. But I forget, you go to Simmons, and such a sentiment 
would be rank heresy in that hive of furious activity. Everything is so 
peaceful here, it seems almost unbelievable that somewhere bells are ring- 
ing shrilly, typewriters clacking, anxious pens trying vainly to keep up 
with the busy tongue of the dictator. My poor devil of a pen was always 
about three laps behind, panting for breath, and with its tongue hanging 
out. I have so often felt sorry for it, and incidentally, me." 

MR. Turner: "The cost of goods manufactured is what, Miss B?" 

Charlotte (guiltily) : "I haven't it." 

Mr. Turner (thoughtfully) : "It's more than that." 


Dr. Harley: "I was surprised. He was surprised. We were both 
surprised !" 


Instructor (in his initial address to a new class) : "For instance, I 
take it for granted that you are all of average intelligence until I find evi- 
dence to the contrary." 


Of elephants the Tufts man sings, 

And chapels 'neath the trees ; 
The Tech man sings of mines and things, 

And classes flunked with ease. 

The Harvard man sings everything, 

Sings till his lungs are lame ; 
But all of them are glad to sing 

With SIMMONS just the same!

Miss Dodge: "NonononononoNO !" 

Dr. Harley: " 'Coy' means to run, but not very fast." 

Mr. Turner: "Suppose you were trying to sell some eggs, eggs that 
haven't voted for President more than once — " 

Ditto: "If you wanted to cross a brook and couldn't make it in one 
jump, try two." 

Twenty-seven and Twenty-five almost had a battle, 

For Twenty-seven, by changing rings, was shifting public chattel. 

When up there came our S. G. A., to point out every moral; 

With group meetings it saved the day, and stopped the petty quarrel. 


The Riddle Pest: "What is black and white and read all over?" 
Secretarial Senior (ruefully): "Returned transcripts !" 

Dr. Lefavour: "If the Government owned all industries, there 
would be no need for advertising." 

Student: "What would we have to read, then?" 

I have a little compact that I take about with me, 

And what I'd do without it is more than I can see. 

It furnishes the powder for my knees, my nose, my head, 

And I thrust it 'neath my pillow when I jump into my bed. 

The tragic thing about it is the way it seems to go, 
Not at all like Mother's compact, which is always very slow. 
For I often reach the metal when I'm prinking at a ball, 
And at some crisis, maybe, I will find there's none at all. 

I use cold cream by jarsfull to make the powder stay, 
But I only make a fool of me in the most embarrassing way, 
For when a pleasant evening has ended, I can see 
That powder stick to Elmer as it never stuck to me !

Group meetings. Should we have a new Honor System? 
Forty-five Simmonsites embark for Jaffrey. Nuff sed. 

Everybody "smoke" your glasses (fooled yuh, didn't we?) — Eclipse. Ellen 
Richard's followers take advantage of the Excursion Rates to Westerly, R. I. 
Musicale. This plus lettuce sandwiches and hot dogs equals South Hall Piano. 
Copley Dance. i 

Ground Hog Day. No shadow. 

Sophomore Luncheon. Refectory looked the best ever. 
Bobby Falkner makes Psych, on time, do you not see? 
Junior-Alumnae Conference held despite the jinx. 

Three one-act plays. "Chinese Love" wins the prize, and Peg Gilman gets 
honorable mention. P. S. — Did every little boy send every little girl a Val- 

Birthington's Washday week-end. How glad we are that Crossington washed 
the Delaware! I 

Junior Show. Honorary guests at the dress rehearsal are Mr. John Clair 
Minot and Dr. Varrell. Wonder what they thought of it? 
Lent is here, no more candy till after Easter. 
Murder on second floor North. Rats turn cannibalistic. 

Senior-Faculty Party. Drs. Lefavour, Eldridge, Varrell and Harley much in 
evidence. St. Patrick also present. 

One special delivery stamp takes MIC to print on time. The Board has time 
to take a deep breath at last.
